The compatible phone or tablet becomes a second screen for the PS4
You can draw anything you like on the phone or tablet and then 'send' it to your TV screen with a finger swipe and the bots start to play with it
Run the app, select 'Connect to PS4' then chose the second screen option when running the Playroom
Ok I've downloaded toymaker from the store, how do I get my smartphone to use it? My smartphone is not compatible with official ps4 app, is that a problem? There's no real guidance with this!
If your phone isn't compatible with the App then that's the problem.
As mentioned before when you run the App your phone becomes a 2nd screeen, in the case of 'Playroom' it's a drawing pad.
Sadly, without the App, you can't use it.
In the App there is a 'Connect to PS4' screen.
Once you have linked your PS4 and your device an option of '2nd screen' will appear.
If you are running Playroom on your PS4 and have the cute lil' robots running about, pressing '2nd screen' on your device turns it into a very basic drawing pad. Draw anything you like, swipe upwards and you will see your creation 'thrown' at the TV for your lil' bitty robots to throw around.
i have downloaded this. how do i access this via the playroom. cant see it.
As long as you have got toymaker from the ps store installed, app for phone or tablet installed on mobile device and have paired up said mobile app to ps4..
... all you do is start playroom with the little robots, connect mobile app with ps4, then select 'second screen' your phone/tablet will change to a sketch pad.
Draw toy shapes, colour in etc, hit ok, then swipe up to throw into room, the little robots then play with the toy..
I got all the 3 trophies for toymaker within 10 mins...
